Open daily

NB! Entrance through the main door

On Friday, 4 August at 7pm, the exhibition “fugacity” will open in Tallinn Linnahall.

The exhibition “fugacity” reflects on the uncertain future of a monumental Soviet concrete structure - Linnahall - as an analogy of a common undefined future of our impermanent present and offers the concept of fugacity as a tool to accept changes and transformations. Fugacity is the quality of impermanence. In thermodynamics, the term stands for a substance's tendency to escape from one environment to another. Fleeting, escaping to find its balance. As a reconciliation site of personal histories and a colonialist past, the monumental Linnahall offers a platform to re-examine the possible ways of transitioning between our past, present and possible common future as well as of co-existing with one another and in/with our natural and built environment.
